“The volatility of man witnesses much expenditure of his energy,
witnesses the highs and lows of the emotions,
witnesses the enthusiastic and the lackadaisical aspects of the character.
The volatility of man tests the conforming power of the spirit and the soul,
tests the controlling influence on the glove of man,
tests the vocabulary of man which issues from the mouth of man –
both at the high point and the low.
The volatility of man should not see a release of a volcano surfacing in stress,
should not experience sleep when immersed in a droning voice.
The volatility of man should show wisdom in its swings,
should not tip the seesaw to bounce upon the earth,
should not shower obscenities as the pressure builds,
should not sulk in silence as the outburst eases.
The volatility of man should not clench a fist as frustration builds,
should not yield to reproaches repetitive in kind,
should not succumb to silence when words are still required,
should not seek an exit when words bounce off the walls.
The volatility of man can be a lead-in to the anger of regret,
can be a lead-in to the violence destroying trust,
can be a lead-in to the smashing of possessions,
can be a lead-in to the searching for a knife.
The volatility of man must be curbed in excess;
must trigger the safeguards of the spirit and the soul;
must apply the brakes while the stopping distance is not excessive;
while the brakes can bring the body safely to a halt;
while the brakes can ensure control is reasserted:
evenly in the avoidance of disaster.
The volatility of man should not be left in ‘automatic’,
should not be left in ‘manual’,
should not be left in ‘drive’,
should not be left ‘in-gear’ –
with the engine running.
The volatility of man should be disconnected at the curb while the engine cools from the climbing of the hill,
should be left at the curb after a fast descent is checked and slowed.
The volatility of man should not run the engine on high octane fuel when diesel is required,
should check the lubrication,
should inspect the warrant of fitness,
should check the cooling water so overheating does not later seize its opportunity –
in the middle of a journey.
The volatility of man should not be inflamed by alcohol,
should not be impaired by drugs,
should not be assisted by a weapon.
The volatility of man should not exceed the flashpoint where ignition causes an explosion,
should stop at the ‘necking point’ before there is a rupture at the ‘yield point’.
The volatility of man should not transfer into belligerence,
should not be overtaken by revenge,
should not destroy in stupidity that which has been built in wisdom.
The volatility of man has hormones rushing to defend,
has a pause waiting for a backlash,
has stupidity controlling the issuance of the mouth.
The volatility of man brings frustration of the will of God,
brings ill-consideration of the way forward,
brings advice from the devil which is very easily actioned,
brings consternation from the angels as they observe Satan at work within the soul of man.
The volatility of man should seek composure for his spirit and his soul,
should inhibit outbursts not condoned by My Spirit,
should shrink from all that would dishonour man:
when being antagonized by an opportunist who lingers in proximity.”
